A WOMAN’S PLACE IS IN THE HOME

By Pete Moore On November 12th, 2017

If we cannot be sure that there is a special invisible bond between mothers and their children, then we cannot be certain about anything. But if this is so, how can we justify the current strident fashion for urging mothers to go out to work when their children are small? I was struck very deeply by one tiny piece of the reminiscences of Esther Rantzen’s daughter Rebecca Wilcox (who has chosen to stay at home with her own children).

It read: “As a toddler, my elder sister Emily used to wave Mum goodbye at the door and then go straight to her bedroom window overlooking the driveway, to watch for her return. “At the time Mum was never told about this daily vigil, but, looking back now, she admits it breaks her heart.” Shouldn’t it break all our hearts? And if not, shouldn’t it make us wonder if we are pursuing a wise and good policy?

Most women go out to work because they have to, not because glamorous jobs in TV await them.

Excerpt from today’s Peter Hitchens column.

Of course he’s right to say that most women go to work from necessity. The reality is that most women are not psychologically sound for the workplace. However, generations of women have been brainwashed by Marxist-Feminism into thinking that they are somehow less than whole if they don’t work. The political and corporate classes treat them as mere tax fodder. The result is that women have stepped down from the pedestal on which we once put them.

It’s time that women were honest. It’s time that they followed their natural instincts and stopped swallowing the cultural revolutionaries’ propaganda. It’s time that women again realise what society once knew – that marrying and raising children is the most noble thing of all. One housewife is infinitely more precious to civilisation than any number of people with jobs. Western societies will be much better off when this truth is again widely accepted.

    I don’t know if there’s a typo in there somewhere.

    But if there isn’t, it raises the question of what price society is prepared to pay to get women to stay at home, i.e. to meet these women’s financial need.
    I for one would be prepared to pay higher taxes if the cash went to mothers wishing to, but financially unable to, raise their children at home (and especially to single, working mums, who IMO are all modern heroines).

    My wife is an architect, but when our first child showed up, I made sure I got enough readies to keep us all in comfort while she stayed at home. Another child soon followed and she ended up staying out of employment for 12 years.

    When she finally returned to the workforce she felt uncomfortably like an old novice. Each year colleges produce a new generation of experts while industry produces a new generation of technology and tools. She found young 24-year-olds zipping around on the latest 3-D CAD systems and more then willing to work for low wages just to get experience and build up their c.v. It took her years to find her way back.

    Everyone has a right to pursue a career, and dropping out and restarting at a time when technology is racing ahead isn’t easy. Women have to face this hardship, but they at least deserve to be compensated for additional loss of earnings.

  4. What, like these “women” at work?.

    The PC plague is spreading..

    Transgender lessons for two-year-olds: Drag queens drafted into nursery schools to teach children about sexual diversity
    Drag queens are reading nursery rhymes ‘to teach youngsters LGBT tolerance’
    Nurseries say they are needed so children can ‘defy rigid gender restrictions’
    But critics say sessions could confuse children on basics of human existence

  5. so what did your wife think of this post?

  6. I may be wrong but I think Pete is unmarried. I wonder why ? 🤔

  7. Colm, I think you’ve got it backwards: Maybe Pete believes that “A woman’s place is in the home” because he was once married to one.

  8. Both my daughters are well qualified and have held responsible jobs. But both have now put the family and home first, the elder works part-time in a job well below her abilities, whilst the younger is a full-time mother. Both husbands have good jobs, but my daughters didn’t want the hassle of e-mails and phone calls at home that they get and which most higher level jobs seem to entail.

    It’s not reality Pete, that’s just more of your made-up bullshit.

  10. The reality is that most women are not psychologically sound for the workplace.

    Whereas Rightwotld inhabitants just aren’t psychologically sound.

  11. The reality is that most women are not psychologically sound for the workplace.

    I think that’s Pete’s way of saying any woman who would prefer her own career over being Pete’s handmaid/bedmaid/kitchenmaid must be psychologically unsound 🙂

  12. Getting women into the workplace and away from the household is deliberate, as described by Aaron Russo at 9.02 of the attached interview:

  13. Dave Alton, Paul McMahon –

    Most women are unsuited to working for a living – sometimes physically, but emotionally without a doubt.

    You commit the gravest error of all, which is to argue against nature and reality. I don’t blame you. The entire Leftist canon is built on arguing with reality. I’m just surprised that Left Wingers, who are predisposed to low testosterone levels, have the energy to keep going. That’s real fanaticism.

  14. Most women are unsuited to working for a living

    Sure.

  15. You’re an expert on psychology as well as economics Pete?

    Is there no end to your talents?

    I remember similar comments being made prior to the Dublin Pegida march.

    Are the lefties of ‘antifa’ violent maniacs or big girl’s blouses? The fickleness of Rightworld is indeed something to behold.

  16. This is why women have smaller feet than men?

    It’s so they can get closer to the sink..

    Okay, I will collect my hat & coat on the way out.
